"Performance Through Learning is a terrific book that does a great job in presenting the challenges and opportunities of knowledge management and organizational learning. The case studies highlight best practices of companies around the world. I thoroughly recommend this book to anyone interested in preparing organizations to successfully face the future."
-- Dr. Mike Marquardt, Professor, George Washington University; Author, Building the Learning Organization
"This is the most definitive work I know of that clearly links knowledge management strategy with enhancements in organization learning. Complete with several first-hand accounts of related case studies, Gorelick and her collaborators make it clear to all who will listen that KM has become a powerful, new social science, not a fleeting technology, and is here to stay!"
-- Mark W. McElroy, President, Knowledge Management Consortium International (KMCI), CEO, Macroinnovation Associaties, LLC
"Most books on KM focus on either practice or theory. This one brings them together using real experience to bridge across know-what, know-how,
know-why and know-when. Regardless of where you are on your KM journey, this book will help you take a next step."
-- Kent Greenes, Chief Knowledge Officer & Sr VP, SAIC
"Performance Through Learning" is a practical guide to the key issues surrounding knowledge management from a human resource perspective and provides incisive insights into developing a strategy linked to organizational learning. The authors present a framework and model that practitioners within organizations can adapt to increase performance through learning using knowledge management tools. The book is divided into two parts and includes: an overview of theory; case studies and practitioner stories from a range of KM initiatives; and, tools and techniques for implementing an effective KM strategy. Written by a respected international author team, the book provides an understanding of the theory that supports knowledge management in the current business environment. It draws upon real-life examples across a variety of organizational settings, from large global financial and professional services firms, to multinational oil and mining companies, to a small charity in the voluntary sector. Authors from US, Canada, South Africa, and UK give this book an international perspective. This is the only book to focus on measurement using balanced scorecard and other HR measurement tools.It provides empirical case studies of how leading organizations in 4 countries have achieved benefits from KM.

I like this manual and it is very formative, however, I don't like the fact that it is very complicated to view it online all the time. To download into a hard copy is very difficult. I do not like e-books very much at all. I feel if I payed for it, I should be able to download and print it for my use.

Getting value out of learning
15 August 2005 - Published on Amazon.com

While we are all clear that we need to learn to be successful in today's market, it is far from clear how to justify "learning" from an economic perspective. It takes time and resources that don't come cheap to the organization, at least not to mine. Based on the authors' experience with cutting edge HR groups, this book shows us how some leading organizations are strategically linking learning and performance. The academic training in the authors provides a clear framework, while the practitioner in them gets to the punch line -- how do we justify to our peers and shareholders what we know to be important.
